Wow! What a great time!
The whole experience was fantastic, from chatting about the dive schedule to the boat and crew and then the dives themselves. The boat is so comfortable and on the 3 days we dived we always left on time with no fuss getting going, the safety briefing and dive briefing were all thorough, the crew helping us get in and out of the dive equipment were friendly and efficient, the gear was in good condition and everyone was just laughing and having a good time.
The food is also good, they have snacks after each dive and tea/coffee/water available all day.
It was great to relax on the top deck on the beanbags and they also have shaded areas up there so you don't get too much sun if you don't want.
It was so good we decided to do an extra day. Will definitely dive with them next time we're here.Pierre T. Lambert
Great dive center. Felt super safe. Team is great and their boat is amazing!!! Went for 3dives in a day saw mantas and sharks. Amazing dives :) highly recommend!Adriano Polli
I randomly chose Manta Rhei to do my Open Water Course based only on the short chat I had with the owner, Benny (only later I discovered how many 5 stars reviews they had)! He was very relaxed and gave me clear indications when I first enter his diving centre. It turned out to be the best choice for me: Michelle, my instructors (one of Benny's daughters) was absolutely fantastic and being only me on the course we got to spend most of the time fun diving rather than doing skills!
I got to try their two boats and they are both comfortable, safe and clean. Food is amazing (breakfast, lunch, plus snacks), the crew very friendly and professional and the equipment is in good conditions. Moreover, having lived and worked here for various years, the instructors are among the most experienced in Komodo and know all the dive sites by heart!
I will definitely come back diving with Manta Rhei as for me, they are the best in town!!
Thanks Michelle, thanks Benny and thanks to the whole crew!!Ed Chalk
I've dived with a few companies across Indonesia and these guys are a very professional, safe and friendly family setup. I was given a guide to myself which was fantastic, especially on the Castle Rock and Cauldron sites. Good food, comfortable boat, slightly younger fun crowd.Lukas Zels
I had an explore dive with Michelle and I felt super save and learnt a lot about diving. She war really great in guiding us and making us feel comfortable under water. She spotted lots of cool things both small and big under water so the dive really left a lasting impression of the beauty around Flores. I am really motivated and confident to get a license after this great experience.Matthew Knight
Awesome people, boat, food, and diving. Great day.Edo Lamoree
Great staff, professional equipment, delicious food. recommendedMarco Helmuth
Great scuba diving with highly qualified professional staff. Do the Liveaboard, it's a once-in-a-lifetime experience! Amazing food!Stefanie Dom
This is a professional dive center runned by a Belgian family. They have a beautiful comfortable safe boat. The crew prepares delicious food and snacks (freshly prepared Belgian waffles!!), is friendly and helps you out setting the equipment. We dived 6 days with them. Their equipment is in good condition, if you have a remark about anything, they replace it immediatly. Any concerns are immediatly adressed by the owners. We had a wonderfull time on the boat and under water. Highly recommended!!!Atchara Lamomphrom
I had great experiences today even it is just my second times snorkeling. Staff are attentive. Their boat look nicer than other around. Meal offering also delicious. Highly recomend Manta Rhei for the day tour.Nora
great first experience with diving. the instructors and guides made me feel perfectly at easeRo Verdeja
Best holidays ever with wife and kids. The boat (Cajoma IV) was very well suited but a bit too much engine fumes in that limited the use of the back balcony of main suite. Tino, our dive fuide was amazing with his choices and always ready to adapt. The crew, very friendly at all times.Benoît Schellekens
You will find many dive shops on Labuan Bajo's strip, all offering day trips of 3 dives at the same price. After having visited a couple, we went with Manta Rhei, a nice family business, and had an amazing time. The boat was overcomfortable, food delicious (and the homemade belgian waffles...) And the staff pro and fun. Our divemaster Alex has been diving in Komodo for so long that you feel like visiting his garden. Just ask for a kind of fish and he will find it for you, before preparing his next joke 😁Timo Stubler
Very good dive center with professional staff!
They are cruising the best dive spots, you can reach on a one day trip! Also the boat is really comfortable and maybe the best in labuan bajo. Thanks for the great days diving here.Janet Schramm
Diving with Manta Rhei will be an unforgettable experience
There are plenty of Dive Shops in Flores. But I would hardly recommend to go diving with Manta Rhei. The Dive school is very professional, the stuff is great and the boats are amazing! There is a comfortable cozy corner – it is such a nice way to go to the different dive spots!Kerrie Diamantopoulos
Do not dive with this company for the following reasons:
1) While they promote safety they are anything but safe. For example, I slipped on their very slippery boat and broke a bone in my wrist. Not one of the diving instructors offered to help and when we asked for a first aid kit we were told that they do not keep such a kit on board.
2) Expensive. We found other diving companies in town offering cheaper prices with a great reputation.
3) Unprofessional staff. Some staff were more interested in hitting on the single tourists on the boat.
Terrible service.Benjamin Sturzenegger
Very good dive shop with great boat, yummy food, nice dives and proper equipment.
Highly recommended!Buffet Crusher
One of the best dive shops I've beenEmmy Sanders
Wow what a day !! This was the highlight of my holiday. This dive center is the best. The boat they have is very nice and comfortable, lots of space to relax. The food is outstanding, good breakfast and home made lunch all included. The boat crew is very helpful. Dive gear is excellent. Dive briefings are very well explained so you know what to expect. Their dive guides are very professional.
And yes of course, manta’s everywhere on Manta point.
This place I would recommend to everybody who goes diving in KomodoAndy Leak
If you are planning on doing 3 dives book somewhere else. Due to the fact some people are on the boat to see the dragons means the final dive is situated near rinca. And would you believe they drop you at a place with no fish. For the money they charge its really not worth it. The boat and tucker are excellent but to be honest id stick to the gillies for a dive spot.
